Find an Item of Inspiration!
One of the questions people ask us most often is, where do I start? They want to decorate their space but have no idea where to begin. While there is no easy way to answer this question, almost all of our designs can be traced back to one or two “items of inspiration.” In general, these are items that our client(s) love with a capital “L”. In our latest project, we worked from two items of inspiration and the rest of the space emerged based around these two pieces:
These may not seem like likely sources of inspiration but because they each offered a distinct feel and our client raved about them, we knew we had two winners! The color palette came from a combination of the multiple colors in the bird painting and the strong turquoise of the pillow. We not only focused on each items’ color, we also paid attention to their style, texture, and overall feel. For example, The Arhaus pillow offered a feel of traditional sophistication which helped define our furniture choices. Yet the texture and style of the bird painting has an element of keeping things light-hearted and fun! We connected this feeling by incorporating the ikat and chevron patterns and pops of color.
The overall combination of our items of inspiration allowed us to produce a space that is as sophisticated as it is fun! If you find something you truly love, something that inspires you, you may have just taken the first step to creating your perfect space! You can do it!
